Prof RC Paul Rose Garden, PU, is adorned with 150 varieties of chrysanthemum for the 12th Chrysanthemum Exhibition being organised by the Horticulture Division from December 10 to 15.

The PU VC will inaugurate the exhibition on Tuesday at 2 pm. Prof Shankarji Jha, Dean of University Instruction, will preside over the function and Prof Karamjeet Singh, Registrar, will be the guest of honour.
